The Monroe Institute Gateway Voyage Program


Don't take our word for it. Here is what our past Gateway Voyage participants have to say about their experience with us.

You can be deaf and the binaural beats will work because they depend on vibrations. You don't "hear" the binaural beat, your brain creates it. That said, the headphones in the CHEC units can be adjusted for volume in each ear. Also, remember - Bob Monroe himself did not use Hemi-Sync, he created it as "training wheels" for the rest of us. Interesting to me is that before Dennis and Tom suggested binaural beats, Bob used a FFR (frequency following response) using the sound of a locomotive engine. Did you know that Monroe "rode the rails" as a hobo for a year during the Great Depression? Moreover, we now know that Carl Jung had one of his first "altered state" experiences while riding in a train more than 100 years ago. For my part, my strongest OBEs have been in during the liminal state between sleep and wakefulness, after I have already been through deep delta sleep. Around 4 am is perfect for me. Take a look at Monroe's books - he often reported his experiences in the wee hours of the morning. Also, please don't be afraid to prime the pump through your imagination. Monroe's first OBE happened while he was in bed ready for sleep, but IMAGINING the fun he was going to have flying in his glider the next day. That's when he popped out, and thought the chandelier was a fountain, and started saw a guy in bed with his wife, panicked and started "swimming" his way from the ceiling back into the body on the bed. Hope this helps even though the answer came at you far later than when you asked!

My journey started eight years ago, it took that long to arrive at the Institute. My life has change greatly in the presents of a few loving beings and by beings, I am talking about my class mates. As I have discuss with the class about my life and the suffering of this life, both physical and mental; and how I have drawn away from society and doing the things I used to love. My class mates showed me its ok to be loved, where as I have shut the door on that many years ago…………….In a few short days they have seen a broken man awaken again, for their love for me has change me. They have shown me its ok to be loved, a few have went beyond love and touch me spiritually. There is a spirit in the mountains that surround the institute, one mountain kept calling me……………..As I went to met the spirit of the mountain, it went deep within me. It has been many years since I have touch a mountain spirit, I have almost forgotten what it was like. I have always felt at home in the mountains, and all the spirits that live within it. Within the forest I am not touch by man, it is a place with out egos. It accepts you as you are, you do not have to measure up to it, it loves you…………Just be one within it. Each morning as I awaken to the dark, once dressed, I enter the peace of the land and went on my daily walk. The birds sang their morning songs as the pine trees freshen the air, deer were ever present to say hi and I welcome them with love. Upon my turn around point from my walk the Sun was waking up and lighting my way back to the Institute (Home), I sent love to our great Mother and the golden life source in the sky. This was my morning exercise, my after lunch, my exercise was visiting my mountain that I’ve come to love; or sitting down at the lake by myself and feeling the silence of where I was. As I sit here and write this from my home in St Petersburg Florida (and yes I am crying), I feel hollow inside without my mountain and my spirit friends. And those of whom I have come to love, my class mates. This journey would have not been possible with out the people of The Monroe Institute and a special thanks to Penny and Steve, you to are amazing on so many levels. Penny may you never lose your laughter, for it brightens the room. And Steve, you have a peace about you that is truly loving, thank you both for all that you have done for me. I will ever love you both dearly……….. Lane Wallace
